so in accesss
I would do something like
This = "/mFilePrintDefault"
WordEXE = Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\winword.exe" & Chr(34)
Filename = Chr(34) & filename & Chr(34)
'the chr(34) just puts the " in place and easy way of doing it them learning
'so If there are spacees in any thing the command does see it as a new command
'(back in the old when you couldn't have spaces in folder name life was a easy)
'now let run the command
ret = shell(WordEXE & " " & Filename & " " & This,vbNormalFocus)
